6A Northridge football is ready to go the distance
By WVUA 23 Sports Reporter Drew Pavan
With the high school football season approaching fast, the Northridge high school football team has a new leader at the helm.
After six years as the head coach of the Jaguars, Mike Vickery left to be the head coach at Pelham high school. The new man in charge is former Gordo head coach Ryan Lolley.
Lolley was terrific in his tenure at Gordo in nine seasons. He compiled a 99-18 record with nine state playoff appearances.
He will take over a Northridge program that has been on the rise of late and will be a contender in a competitive Class 6A region four.
Northridge is led by 4-star Alabama offensive line commit Wilkin Formby.
The Jaguars open up the season at Class 7A Oak Mountain on August 19. Lolley will bring the physicality and grit his teams at Gordo had to Northridge.
